Interesting Blogs

I was showing Tracy (super girl who helps me out at ZedBiz) some ideas about Blogging today.  So I was perusing various interesting blogs. I came accross some very interesting reading. Here is a list of blogs that are worth checking out.  Not only are they interesting – but also take note of the formatting – how the authors use various highlighting (bold, italic, etc), pictures, links, punctiation and quotes. http://www.shoemoney.com/ http://www.income.com/blog/ http://sethgodin.typepad.com/ http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/ http://www.43folders.com/  All worth the click, Jack

Death of ….. – Whatever

DO PEOPLE NOT GET IT! ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it’ – George Santayana – The Life of Reason. Can anyone name one great person, one rich person, one great promotion that was hugely successful that was based or did it with Pessismistic or Negative advertising. Sure Doom and Gloom may give you a little publicity.  It may make a few sales.  But then what – where are you left – your sales funnel gets choked off by your own creation. Either your Gloomy prediction comes true (which never happens) or else people look at you like your a quack and walk away. Your great publicity, all the attention fizzles away. But yet, I see it happen again and again – all these negative predictions, all this doom and gloom advertising – PEOPLE – you are wasting your money and my time!!! What sells – and will sell day in …

Online Marketing Basics

I talked to a good friend of mine yesterday. A lady that is very smart, excellent business skills – actually more of a natural talent for business as she does not have the training nor years of experience – but can and does fit right in with ceo’s, managers and trained business experts. Anyway, we were talking about marketing ideas and the conversation was moving towards online marketing and the internet marketing industry. She has no personal knowledge or experience in the so called ‘Internet Marketing’ industry so I had to give her a brief introduction. Now one would think that with all the newbie guides out there, and different introductory courses it would be easy to describe internet marketing in laymans terms to a new person. Especially one with business and marketing savvy. But I found it extremely hard to find the right way to describe this industry without sounding completely ludicrous – ‘You …

Where Am I Today

Todays post is a little off topic to what usually  I post here on this blog.  But it relates in a couple ways. First and foremost, this is about my experiences, and relaying quality information to you that I come across.  So because this is something that I am doing, then it does fall into that category. And second, I want to compare and contrast some difference in real life, and in a very distinct niche, with the area of Internet Marketing. I am at a conference put on by the Alberta Agriculture Economics Associatiaon and the University of Alberta called Visions 2007. In general the topic is wide ranging about various areas of opportunity for rural Alberta and Agriculture here in Alberta. And most of the speakers come from an educational background. You might even say the room is fairly full of eggheads. (I think I say more economic profs here than I did …
